Three Essential Photoshop Elements for Web Designing

Designing a website with help of Photoshop can be a bit difficult so you need to be very careful. One needs to keep in mind that web media is different from print media and the websites have to be interactive enough as much as possible. 
Three essential Photoshop elements that one needs to take care while designing a web site.  
  1. Navigation Must be Smooth: The web pages that are design and are final to go live are crucial for a website. They will make or break the image of a company and get visitors to the website who can be potential buyers. All this only depends on one thing and that is navigation. If the navigation is not appropriate then a visitor will get confused while surfing through your website and will not know where to go and what to do. If they will not be able to get the information, they were looking for then they will not stay on your website for long and not plan to come back. Navigation route and number of clicks to reach the destination is the only way to decide whether the website is good or not. Photoshop is not a website designing software and is mostly use for designing for print media so one must make sure that the designing is done keeping in mind the web designing standards. The website layout should be planned accurately and Photoshop must be use to make the layout simple and easily navigable.
  2. Website Size (width): The size of the monitors varies from 14, 15 and 17 etc… and it is not necessary that everyone will have the same monitor size. This makes sit essential for the web design company to make sure that the web design service they will provide will be adjusting according to the screen size of the computer. In addition, as the number of computers with LCD screen is increasing the screen resolution is also getting higher. Most of the monitors nowadays have 1024 * 768 pixels. This change in the hardware is making it essential for many websites to have high resolution of a wide screen. While designing with Photoshop the issue is more critical as one has to do the designing carefully as, if by chance the website loads on a high-resolution screen it will start distorting.
  3. Web Page vs. Print: Designing for paper or print media is very different from website designing. If a design is looking beautiful on print then it is not necessary that it will look impressive on website. The major difference one can know between these two is the elements. The visual elements like images, graphics and animations hardly add any extra load to the print. However, the website design requires the designers to balance the visual elements and text. The visual elements are more effective at converting visitors to buyers but they slow the loading time.
